In the pages of this riveting book, The Barefoot Doctor charts his 25 years of training with some of the most inspiring and innovative teachers and gurus of their generation. You’ll meet a man who could drive with his eyes closed, the yogi who actually emitted light when meditating, the Tai Chi teacher who could throw people across the room with one finger, and luminaries such as R. D. Laing and Ram Dass. In addition, you’ll encounter colorful characters like Geronimo’s grandson and Psycho Dan, who’s on the lam for tearing off a man’s ears with his bare hands! Recounting a journey that takes him from urban London to the back alleys of Hong Kong, to the mystical mountains of New Mexico and back again, The Barefoot Doctor achieves something unique: he tells ripping yarns about real-life spiritual leaders that also succeed in passing on the essence of their teachings. As well as being hugely entertained, you’ll come away inspired to start living by your own intuition so you can create an incredible life for yourself.

The memoir of a New Age seeker/martial artist, the stories were amazing but also weird and creepy. While the book stretched the realm of possibility it just wasn't inspiring to me; maybe I'm just not far enough along the path but I didn't enjoy this book even though it was well written and interesting if you like the bizarre. If you are deeply into New Age beliefs this might be the book for you; as for me I'd give it a pass.

This book is about Stephen Russell and not about supercharged taoists. You will be disappointed.
